It is frosty and forecast for the week but it makes no difference to the marigolds - here they are, albeit a bit ragged, flowering next
to the snowdrops!
The sarcococcus is flowering well outside the back door which is not of much good to the memsahib as she has lost much of her pong detection to a virus a while back.
The main path has been hoed and mem' has been clearing much of the dead and scruffy stuff from the flowerbeds. However we seem to be over run by broad-leaved willowherb and cress - weeding to do.
The compost heap is too small so plans are afoot for a big drive-in one or two beyond the veg beds a la Monty Don.
The thin wide image below is of the woodland path with the snowdrops getting going on the upper side. Every year divide and spread - in the end we will have a white carpet. The price for such as snowdrops and bluebells in the catalogues is absurd.
Now some more cash would be a help for doing more to the garden - I wonder if a directorship is vacant at RBS - I could just take the bonus and resign?
And to the surviving flowering nasturtium of which I was so proud. I was tidying the bed ten feet away where there was a sad gooey mess - nasturtium remains - so I pulled (and pulled) to find at the far end the remaining flowers.
Bye bye nasturtium.
